What’s For Dinner: Chicken Fajita Soup

March 5, 2015 in Recipes

As most of you know, cooking hasn’t always been my forte. When I was a newlywed I would be lying if I said I never started a fire in the kitchen. (That’s a story for a different day).

Life has changed a little bit and I actually enjoy cooking if I’m making something that doesn’t take years to make and if it’s something that tastes as good as what I would pay at a restaurant.

So my friends… that’s what today’s post is all about! We love soup at our house on cold weather days, and my husband scarfed this recipe DOWN. (That’s saying something because he’s quite the food critic when we go out to eat 😉 ) My sweet sister-in-law sent this to me saying how easy it was to make and she was completely right!

EASY CHICKEN FAJITA SOUP:

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro (I used fresh cilantro since that’s what I had on hand)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. Add chicken to the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix cream of chicken soup, salsa, corn, black beans, water, cumin, and cilantro. Pour over the top of chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Remove the chicken and shred with two forks. Place back into the slow cooker and add shredded cheese. Continue cooking until cheese has melted about 15 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Optional Toppings:

  • sour cream
  • diced tomatoes
  • green onions
  • cilantro
  • lettuce
  • diced avocado (my favorite!)
  • tortilla strips
  • Slap Ya Mama cajun seasoning

NOTE:

*The ingredient that made it all come together for me was the “Slap Ya Mama” seasoning. I had never heard of it before we moved to Texas and I am sold. I secretly put it on everything. Also, if you don’t have 4 hours for the crockpot just throw everything in with rotisserie chicken and it will be ready in no time! ENJOY:)

    Was the chicken raw when you put it in the crock pot? I’m planning to make this soon, but I wasn’t sure if I needed to cook the chicken first.

      So sorry I’m barely responding to this! Yes, I put it in raw but you can use pre-cooked chicken if you want to make it quicker! 🙂
